There are moments on this album where the group sounds as much like a chamber orchestra as a folk ensemble, and it fulfills both roles exceptionally well (as listeners to the numerous albums that have appeared since can attest). The lineup here - Paddy Moloney (pipes, tin whistle), Sean Potts (tin whistle), Michael Tubridy (flute, concertina, tin whistle), Martin Fay (fiddle), Seán Keane (fiddle), Peader Mercier (bodhran, bones), Derek Bell (harp) - is generally considered the peak of the group's membership and history, and lasted until the end of the decade.
On this early gem, The Chieftains combine the spirit of a great pub session with the impeccable technique of a small orchestra. The familiar reel "Drowsy Maggie" becomes a showcase for virtuoso fiddle and whistle solos, and "Women of Ireland" (later the theme for Kubrick's Barry Lyndon) is the sweetest of airs. This album marks the arrival of Derek Bell's lilting harp and a more ambitious sense of arrangement: "The Battle of Aughrim" is their first instrumental suite, stringing traditional pieces together to tell a larger story.
Cultural ambassadors, The Chieftains started their journey in Ireland in 1962. Since then they have won six Grammy Awards and are highly recognized for reinventing traditional Irish music on a contemporary and international scale
